That was posted less then 10 days ago. Thats when everyone has been saying the zune is dead only in the last ten days. Don't get upset at me i'm just pointing out an article that says they were told point blank that zune entertainment is alive but the zune MP3 player is dead. I that it stinks as much as most of the rest of us do. Microsoft should have gotten into the music buisness alot sooner and we may not be having this topic. I wish it wasnt so because they Zune HD was an amazing device and would have loved to see it evolve into something more. Oh well guess it time to get a windows phone 7 and move on with my life.

Actually, the article was published on March 15, the same day that Bloomberg had an article that declared the Zune dead. And the article says that "Microsoft reportedly" has killed the Zune. That is not a statement of fact, but just the repetition of a rumor.

Dear Scott,

Thank you for your interest in Zune. Unfortunately we are no longer able to provide you with an extended warranty for your Zune devices at this time, as Zune devices will no longer be manufactured or supported. We understand the inconvenience this may cause, however we are unable to offer you an extended warranty for your devices due to these circumstances.

We're absolutely committed to providing the best movies, music, and TV show experiences through Zune on Xbox, the PC, Windows Phone 7 and Zune devices. We'll share more information about the evolution of the Zune entertainment service and Zune hardware as future plans develop on Zune.net.

Sincerely,
Nathan G.
The Zune Originals Team
I called ms to get clarification on this subject matter and this is towards the zune legendary devices and legendary originals. They told me that this doesn't apply to the HD since it is their highest promoted device(or something like that). This was from the manager and he said that this also doesn't apply and originals of the HD. He also stated that the reason why they took out extended warranty for all devices(including wp7) was because there was a low and limited demand and amount of people choosing the option for extended warranty. They said they are aware of the rumors and said the same statement about the evolution of the ecosystem and hardware(if it was just ecosystem it would be redundant, and wouldn't mentioned in the first place). They also stated they can't give out confidential info(of course)

But one of the questions they asked me was that if I am part of the media/press. I told them no, but I asked them would a forum like here and abi would count. He denied that statement. He would consider something like gizmodo or engadget part of the press. It would be a different story if we were part of the media.

Lastly he told me that if an official statement of the zune hardware line being discontinued from ms, they would've put it on the zune.net site. So there you go. in the end they gave me this email for questions and such on the subject

zunepress@edelman.com

God do I hate calling support for anything

Can someone explain to me where EXACTLY it proves that the Zune is alive and there will be a new one? Don't think so

Really does not look good to me. However, I am happy with my 32 GB HD and would not look to upgrade unless a new version was radically improved in any case. I might consider a WP7 phone in my next upgrade if a lot more apps are made available to rival what Android has today (unfortunately, many quality apps are currently being written for Android and IPhone, but now for WP7 at this time), but would still keep my Zune HD since it offers consierably more storage space (from what I have read, WP7's have 16 GB with no HD card add-ons), and provides me with the FM-HD channels, which as far as I know, no WP7 phone does today.

We will see....

I own a WP7 (HTC HD7) and a Zune HD (32gb) and the interface zune wise is different, if the future Zune HD is heading the way of WP7 i would much rather use my Zune HD for music then have its functions anything like my WP7

just saying, the link shows absolutely no proof that there will be a new zune, let alone that zune is alive. my zune is my best friend, don't get me wrong, but to say that his job description from feb. 2010 says he works on zune, doesn't mean anything. microsoft already stated that zune team isn't getting fired, so why this news means anything i don't know.
